The way I see it, beings such as angels, which in mythological stories are said to be created by God, are emanations or aspects of the “higher” or more fundamental being which they emanate from or were created by. What that means, to my understanding, is that these beings, in this example angels, are individuated slices of powers and qualities of the more fundamental being, which in this case is God/Yahweh/Source/Tetragrammaton/whatever.
I believe that these angels “rely” on God in the sense that they are powers of God manifested into more discrete forms that make it possible to understand what these powers are capable of and to work with them in a practical way to change reality. In all the angel magick that I work with, names of God are used as a way to access and summon the power of the angels. If you don’t use the Godnames then you may still get something to come through, but to me that’s like trying to turn on a lightbulb when the power is switched off in the breaker.
I think the reason people sometimes find magick disappointing is because they try to chant an angel name or a demon name without anything else, or perhaps with an “enn” or some other questionable incantation that fails to connect them to the underlying energy of magick that empowers all forms of magick, whatever the illusory aesthetics of that magick may be.
I’m not an expert on Canaanite mythology, but from what I’ve read of this and other “Near Eastern” or “the general area of Mesopotamia” or whatever it is that people call this region (“the biblical world” doesn’t seem entirely accurate), I do not recall Yahweh ever being mentioned. The only time I’ve heard the word “Yahweh” being used is by modern Christian Protestant denominations and by people here who hate Christianity. I certainly have my problems with Christianity and the shit it infects the world with, though this is as much the fault of your average Christian as the Holocaust was of the average German. I’ve heard of Hebrew Godnames like El also being spirits in some pantheons, perhaps Caananite or other closely related pantheons, don’t recall the exact details so really I’m just kind of spewing shit without referencing any primary sources or works done by trained scholars, which I most certainly am not, who have studied those sources.
I think the myths tend to serve a purpose in that they help magicians understand the insights that the spirits have to give. I do not believe Lucifer was created by any “Yahweh.” I think “Yahweh” is about as useful and specific a term as “Protestant.” That’s why I believe all the Christians praying to “God” don’t manifest anything or tap into any real magickal power. Aside from their lack of basic occult techniques, they are praying to some vague being made up by religious authority figures and tainted with all the biases that these figures impose upon spiritual teachings. Church is mostly not even about spirituality at all, it’s about getting politics shoved down your throat in the guise of religion.
Again, though, I may as well just be making all this shit up. Here are some books for anyone interested in mythology. It is far from comprehensive.
The Harps that Once - Sumerian Poetry in Translation by Thorkild Jacobsen. Works and Days by Hesiod (rando Greek one by it’s on the bookshelf). Stories from Ancient Canaan, Second Edition by Michael Coogan and Mark Smith. Hittite Myths, Second Edition by Harry Hoffner Jr. Other notable works would be The Epic of Gilgamesh and the Enuma Elish. There are many other stories I’ve read but got through sources that are paywalled and difficult to access other than through a university.
If you can find a single mention of “Yahweh” in there please correct my misremembering. I’m not trying to be a shithead and I’m also really not trying to argue on the internet. I enjoy talking about the occult though. The last time I was active here I’d see a post every other day with something like “Is Inanna really Loki???” and “My UPG is that Metatron is actually Agares but the JCI larpers turned the badass demon into an angel” and it’s pretty annoying seeing really dumb misconceptions spread around.
